Power Of The Writ­ten Word

The People's Friend - - Soap By Glenda Young -

On Fe­bru­ary 25 you pub­lished a let­ter on pen friends by Ms O.B. of Or­ton.

We were child­hood friends and stayed in touch un­til my hus­band and I em­i­grated. I was a shock­ing let­ter writer, al­low­ing lim­ited time and emo­tional lows to hin­der me, and a num­ber of con­tacts were sadly lost.

How­ever, Ms O.B., bless her, per­sisted even though her life on a farm was more pres­sured than mine.

This year, we were able to be to­gether with all her fam­ily.

To those, like me, who don’t al­ways re­spond when they should, re­mem­ber that good friends like Ms O.B. are much too pre­cious to lose!
